MISSIONARY

Kori Higdon

Aloha, I'm Kori!

My life trajectory took a major shift in 2015, after embarking on a life changing journey around the world with Adventures in Missions through a program called The World Race. We served the poorest of nations in 11 different countries over the course of 11 months. That year I experienced the heartbreaking reality of how women and children are exploited daily in the sex trade industry. To put it plainly, I have felt led to do something about this global atrocity ever since. My mission in life is to bring hope, freedom, and healing to women and girls here in my own beloved community of Honolulu, Hawaii who are currently being exploited in this industry-those who feel trapped and want OUT.

 

After recently graduating as a Master of Social Work with an emphasis in behavioral mental health and trauma-informed care, I have created both a non-profit and a life coaching platform which work simultaneously with one another through providing services such as, but not limited to:

 

  • Grief/trauma counseling

  • Assistance in applying for college/higher education

  • Advocacy in domestic violence situations

  • Parenting support

  • Collaborative support with community partners/resources

  • Acquiring medical care/ safe housing

 

So, HERE’s the CATCH! This is where YOU come into the journey.

 

The women and girls I currently work with cannot afford normal rates for a life coach to meet with them weekly and provide this type of intensive, one on one, supportive assistance. Let’s remember that most often, poverty is what put them in this industry in the first place- not choice.

 

If you are reading this, I implore you on behalf of our community to not overlook this precious, yet extremely vulnerable population.

 

In the spirit of ALOHA, would you consider becoming a monthly donor to make healing and hope of a better future possible for even just one woman?

 

 Kori
